    I just hatched some Delaware chicks but didn't do any candling so I really didn't know what I had. All my pips hatched except one and I decided what the heck, I'd help him a little. I did partially then left him to his own devices. I just checked back and noticed he was out of the shell but thing was, there was another chick in the egg. That one didn't make it but what a small miracle I got one. Very Cool and the first time in 30 years of life with chickens that I've ever had this happen. Thought you chicken folks would enjoy this as much as I.
